A Naked Amanda Palmer Returns To Her Living Statue Roots For Book Donations

Performance artist turned Dresden Dolls singer turned motivational speaker turned mama-to-be Amanda Palmer stripped down naked and went back to her roots as a living statue for children’s book donations at the New York Public Library yesterday. She painted her pregnant body half in bronze and half as a sort of anatomy lesson, in recreation of the Damien Hirst statue Verity.

Her husband, legendary fantasy writer Neil Gaiman, donated the last book before lending her a hand down from her pedestal.
